Te Akau Taupo Sunday Preview


Te Akau New Zealand has four horses racing on Sunday 13 September at Taupo.

Weather: fine, track: Dead4, rail: true. No rain forecast.

2.04 p.m. R3 9 Kahma Lass (3 f Darci Brahma – Distinctive Lass) – Leith Innes; won stylishly when trialling on 3 September at Te Teko, and debuts in the $10,000 Maiden 3YO 1100 metres. A sister to nine-time winner Distinctive Darci, bought by David Ellis and earned NZ$1m prize money in Singapore, she has drawn wide (15) but shapes to produce a bold performance. 

2.39 p.m. R4 5 Keke Star (4 m Shooting To Win – Kekova) – Danielle Johnson; galloped strongly for a close second when trialling on 3 September at Te Teko, and debuts in the $10,000 Maiden 1000 metres. Out of dual listed winner Kekova (Elusive City), from a terrific Little Avondale Stud family, she is ideally drawn (3) to rate a top three chance.

3.14 p.m. R5 9 Rhapsody in Blue (4 m Medaglia d’Oro – Kablues) – Danielle Johnson; capped solid form with victory over 1300 metres in September last year at Taupo, lost both front plates when racing in July and resumes in the $10,000 Rating 65 1200 metres. Meeting a strong field, she is ideally drawn (1) to show improvement.

3.49 p.m. R6 2 High Achiever (4 g Pins – Thee Achiever) – Chad Ormsby; ran the fastest last 600m (34.5) when winning on debut in the Maiden 3YO 1200 metres on 3 January at Te Aroha. Trialling well for fourth to Group 2 winner Yearn (Savabeel) on 3 September at Te Teko, he resumes in the $10,000 Rating 65 1200 metres and rates a top three chance from barrier three.
